Description

Interested in getting into 3D modelling but don't know where to start? don't worry, because this is the course to get you started on your journey in 3D graphic design. Blender 3D is an open source 3D modelling software that is free to download and use for anybody and everybody. 

My name is Joe Baily and I am a 3D artist and have been using blender for several years as well as 2D software such as gimp and krita. This course has been created to act as the key that will open the door to an entire new skill set for you in the world of 3D modelling.

Reviews from current students

"Its really good to get the basics and you're pretty much ready to do stuff after. =D"

Rafael Antonio

"Great first course for how to use Blender. It gives a very high level overview of the capabilities of the tool and is paced just right. I would recommend this course to anyone who hasn't used Blender before. Nicely done!"

Lee Harris

This course will focus on all of the core aspects of the software and how to get you started in using blender in as little as two hours or less. The course will act as an introduction to the following topics:

The Interface - How to use blenders panel based UI

Modelling - Creating models from basic objects such as a simple cube

Modifiers - Using modifiers as modelling shortcuts to get the desired results in a short space of time

Materials - Apply materials to objects to change their appearance and how the surfaces of an object react to light

Animation - Using keyframes and blenders timeline to create a simple animation with an object.

Who is the target audience?
  • Absolute beginners who have yet to start using blender
  • Not for those who already have a basic understanding of how blender works
  • If you can already meet the course goals before taking the course, then the course may not be for you
  • A great starting point for those who want to get into 3d modelling or animation

Hello, my name is Joe Baily and I am a Udemy instructor who specialises in computer graphics software and sport coaching, quite a combination I know. I have been involved in computer graphics for several years where I have developed my skill sets in asset creation, 3D modelling, animation, game creation using tools such as Blender, Adobe, Gimp etc.

In addition I have also gained a great deal of knowledge in the field of computer coding with languages such as C++, java and HTML. On the flip side of this I have also worked as a sports coach as my official profession where I have worked in multiple environments from schools to sports clubs to summer camps. I have over 10 years experience in sport coaching and have coached football, tennis and athletics amongst many other sports.
